WikiRank - online tool for automatic relative quality and popularity assessment of Wikipedia articles in different language versions. Currently the tool allows to evaluate articles in 55 languages.

Approach

Recent studies[1][2][3] proposed using synthetic measure for estimating Wikipedia articles on a scale from 0 to 100 in a continuous scale. Unlike traditional categorial quality grade an article can receive, for example, an estimate of 33.41.

Interesting facts

  • WikiRank is used for didactic purposes in various higher educational institutions (such as the University of Warsaw[4])
